My mother-in-law showed me some pictures of crocheted bracelets she had come across on the web and they looked amazing. This one I considered to be be the prettiest, if you search "freeform crochet bracelet" you see many more examples. I decided to copy the one I liked best as a gift to my mother-in-law.
I didn't have a pattern and just winged it, based on the picture. This year, I am crocheting along the crochet-along-2015 (which is being translated to English) and I used some stitches I came across in that blanket into the bracelet. At the top of the bracelet for example is week 9's pearl stitch.
When the bracelet lies flat, the sides curl up, but when worn, this does not create a problem. I used two perfectly matching (both theme and color wise) flower buttons from my stash to close the bracelet.
I crocheted the bracelet with very thin cotton and my 1.5 crochet hook. The little beads are also from my stash, I once bought two boxes of assorted beads. As a child I dreamed of having such nice beads, I remember them to be very expensive. Now they are just a few euros.
I like the result a lot and might make one for myself as well. I normally do not wear jewelry, but this is something I see myself wearing.
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
